Soft Shell Crab Season

I probably overstated. 3rd and Catherine looks like a lunchonette but always clean, though not particularly an atmosphere restaurant.

Soft Shell Crab Season

I had the sof shells at Demitri's last night. The entree was 3 niced sized crabs with sides of escarole and rice for $24. The place is a dump but has great sea food.

black olive

I went to Earth bread and brewery last Friday, and had a great Pesto pizza and very good house brewed beer. Across the street I notice a small restaurant called Black Olive, that I was unaware existed. Does anyone have information?

Another BYOB Question

Cochon can get noisey on weekends, but seems to be better during the week. Any small BYOB may have a noise issue but I have had some very good meals there.

How was Cuba? I had dinner there when they first opened and was not impressed.

Soul

Has anyone been to the new restaurant in Chestnut Hill, Soul. It opened a few days ago where Citrus was. I miss Citrus, it was one of the few good places in this area.

Root

Has anyone been to Root the new BYO on Spring Garden. The menu looks interesting, and I wonder what their performance is like.

Having a birthday - Solaris Grille?

You are referring to Cake. Great space dining in an ex-greenhouse. They are open for lunch and Sunday brunch. They serve dinner on Thursdays. I was there for brunch and had very good omlett. It is worth trying.

Lunch near Barnes

Philly is known for BYOB's. Sola is a small BYOB about a 10 minute drive up Lancaster Ave. Great food, just check to see if they are open for lunch.

Pizza in NW Philly, Glenside, Wyncote, Jenkintown . . .

Roman Delight on Old York Road in Abington has very good thin crust pizza. I always thougth it was better than Rizzo's in any incarnation. I also like Couch Tomato in Manayunk.

baked rice pudding

My mother used to make a rice pudding baked in the oven with cinnimon and raisins. It was slightly sweet and was firm in texture. On a recent rainy day I started thinking about it. Does anyone have a recipe?

Pif

Thanks for the information. I love french bistro cooking and miss Pif. I was talking to some foodie friends and they told me Pif has reopened. They must have been referring to the Sunday dinners.

Good Pizza in Chestnut Hill/ Mt Airy/ Germantown Area

I'm a fan of Couch Tomato in Manayunk. Very thin crispy crust,flavorful tomato sauce, and good cheese. Parking is a pain but worth the effort.
